so that we will not fall
into a state of despair.

And when we’re persecuted,
our lives are not shaken

we’d never be forsaken.

And when we’re cast down,
we are not devastated
for we know from God
we’ll never be separated.

We are earthen vessels,
inside of us Jesus lives
and daily into our life’s
His power He boldly gives!
